The patio at Luminarias restaurant in Monterey Park was the setting for a joyful afternoon ceremony for Dina and Oscar, native Los Angelenos and die-hard baseball fans.  Our Officiant, Reverend Ralph, thoroughly enjoyed meeting and marrying the two- a genuinely loving young couple!

Glendora Wedding is a Hoot!

Roger Party

Great Officiant Roger had a doozy of a wedding on the 15th when he married Jim and Jean of Glendora. It looked like it was going to be a nice, quiet ceremony. Little did Roger know, that this couple had LOTS of loving friends and family that were there to C.E.L.E.B.R.A.T.E.!  Not only was the pre-ceremony a hoot, but they were one involved, fun-filled group of people during the ceremony too! Roger had a blast, and best of all, Jim and Jean had a blast as well! Let’s do it again!

Valentine’s Couple Battles Fog for Heartfelt Wedding

Jane, Ron & AVY

Great Officiant Anthony performed a Christian ceremony for Jane and Ron. This couple lives in Atlanta, GA. Due to inclement weather, Jane and their three adult children were literally on the last plane to make it out of Atlanta on Thursday!

The wedding was scheduled for 3:00pm on the beach so we headed down a little beforehand only to be met with fog. This was not just a little fog, this was a LARGE blanket of fog with no ocean in sight.

We formed a plan and the six of us piled into the rental SUV and started zipping around South OC until we found a spot that still had some sunlight on it. We ended up at the Palisades Gazebo in Dana Point. The ceremony was heartfelt and obviously meaningful to both Ron & Jane. Finding the perfect spot was well worth the adventure!

Rave Review for Great Officiant Roger- Well done!!!

“I just wanted to thank you again for officiating our wedding ceremony.  It was such a pleasure meeting you in person.  It was PERFECT!  Almost every guest came up to us afterward and told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and said it was one of the best, if not the best, ceremonies they had ever attended.  In fact, two of our couples friends who were thinking of renewing their vows in the next year or so but really didn’t want to because of the “traditional” ceremonies they are accustomed to, told us that now they definitely want to, and they want you!  What a compliment.  And that is what we wanted…for all of our guests to have as much fun and great memories as we did.

I am so glad I chose you and Great Officiants to perform the ceremony and take care of the marriage license too.  You made the process almost effortless and worry free, especially for a location/outdoor wedding.  Great job Great Officiants!”

Regards,

Jean
